Paper, paper and more paper. I am a paper pack rat. I have it neatly tucked away, but realize I still have too much. I'm not talking about circulars and ads, because I go through the mail as soon as it arrives and immediately discard junk mail.
It's some of the stuff, that I do need, and then forget about. When I remember, I either no longer need it, can't remember why I was saving it or both!
I read your article about Managing Scraps of Paper. The portable scanner is an awesome tool. Quite pricey though! I can afford the carrying case. Maybe I'll get that first and work my way up to the scanner.
